Welllllll, it's still going. (-: I mentioned this in the May update, but I've given myself permission to keep working on my list until my 31st birthday. I know, I know. This doesn't make it a THIRTY BY THIRTY, but it's my THIRTY BY THE END OF THIRTY.
Judge me if you want, but let's keep it real: I'm gonna do what I want.
Without further ado:
- Health and Fitness
- get acupuncture
- lose 25 pounds-5 pounds to go!
run a 5K
- run a 10K
- run the Indy-mini
- complete a fast
I have been a complete slacker. I have barely been working out anything except my brain and there are days when that's not going so well...
- invest money into a stock
- put $3000 in savings and keep it there for 6 months or longer [just noticed the typo in the original document, awesome.]
purchase a car, make payments rounded up to the nearest 100 for 12 months-Car purchased Aug 2011, one year into a 3 year loan. (-:
Can we talk about school loans? living on them? FOR EVERYTHING? I'm scared. Hold me.
apply and get accepted and attend a master's program, so I'm not going to a master's program. I AM going back to school!
- learn more about the bible
- take a healing touch class
Yup, going back to school. Need to read the bible more. Get on looking for a healing touch class, my friend who has taken one took from a program that teaches a weekend in Indy, so I'm going to try to get in there!
get paid to take pictures submit something to be published write 3 chapters for a book sell 10 items on Etsy
Can we keep it real? I just can't care about these things right now. True story, that's how I'm going to roll.
In knowing I was moving, it wasn't fair to a Little that I would leave her so quickly...that has been delayed for a bit until I get my life in some kind of order. Or maybe just slightly less chaos is a more attainable timeline.
flirt say "yes" to dates- go 4-months without purchasing a clothing item go a month without a cell phone
DONE. DONE. DONE. Boom.
- travel alone
- go to Canada-Will people flip if I travel to Canada alone? It's just across the border...
- go to Mexico
Why am I poor? Why?!? Why? WHYYYYY?!?!?!
- grow hair out and donate it-so close! I'm hoping for a spring chop! Here's a recent picture with it straight. It's definitely not this red either!
wear make-up daily for a month-
- be in a community musical-BLARG. BLECH. BOO. Can we invent a place where days have 40 hours in them so I can get everything I want to do done? While we're at it will you send me a future LOML who is independently wealthy? pleaseandthankyou?
- find a cakewreck,
submit itand have it show up on their website
You know I started taking classes in August, right? And that I'm transitioning to Indianapolis? And that I forgot how to be a student? And that it's way harder now that I'm 30 and not 19 and I actually care about what I'm doing? [Is there a correlation there? age and caring and grades?]
Anyway, I mention the school thing becuase it's basically the priority in my life right now. That's why blogging will be sporadic [unless I'm avoiding work] and picture-taking will be minimal. Not that that's how I want it to be but if I could figure out how to get money from taking pictures and being crafty and drinking coffee and rambling about non-important non-life-altering things that would be totally rad. If it provided enough money for actual travel that would be even more rad.
I don't feel like that's my calling anyway, so...yeah. Just a happy fantasy to distract me from the real goal.
I'm in-progress for a lot of items and I don't want to totally give up on some of them. Hence my extended deadline to November 14, 2013. So before I turn 31, I will accomplish most of my list!
I will leave you with a picture of me from last year:
And this year:
love you people.
